On the fourth day of advent my kiddiewinks brought to me
4 early mornings
3 spectacled reindeer
2 toilet decorations
And a tantrum about the Christmas tree.
Although on the whole we have loved our annual visit from a cheeky elf (until this year known as Sam; this year known as Tink), the first few days this time have involved a very early wake up call from a very excited little man. He is clambering into our bed at stupid o’clock “mummy, can I go and discover where the cheeky elf is, I just can’t wait”. This is all at a time we definitely do not deem morning. Daddy was ready to send the elf back to Santa, never to return. At which little man was adamant it was not his fault he was getting up early, how could he know it wasn’t morning, it was dark in the morning too and he hadn’t got a clock. On mum’s suggestion we told him he couldn’t get up til the radiators were warm, genius idea! No more earlywakings (for now)…
